Joss Whedon (via wordsnquotes)
Forgive me if I’ve told this story, but back in 2007, I met Joss Whedon in the “my airline ticket isn’t working!” help desk at LAX.
I recognized him and my brain detonated a little, but he was with his family and I didn’t want to bother him. I settled for going up to him after his tickets had been fixed, and saying how much I liked his work, complimenting him particularly on the BUFFY comic (which was new at the time).
Happily, though, Joss and I wound up next to each other in the security line, and I told him a very little bit about myself and asked him if he had any advice. He did, and some of it feels too personal and treasured to share, but here is one of my favorite things he said:
"Don’t write stuff just for money. I’ve done it, my friends have done it, and it made us all miserable. Deliver pizzas before you write stuff just for money."
Anyway, yeah, what a wonderful encounter that was. I’ll never forget it, and never stop being grateful for it.
Jana Romanova a Russian photographer captures couples in their sleep to explore their cultural attitude inside their families. Since she didn’t want them to pose she had to stick around their house till they fall asleep deeply and she would take the picture at 5-6 am. The project was named “Waiting” as they are parents to be.
